Canadian Securities Exchange Reports February 2022 Performance Figures
March 15, 2022 – Toronto, ON – The Canadian Securities Exchange (“CSE” or “the Exchange”) today announced its market statistics for the month of February 2022.
February 2022 Operating Statistics
- Trading volume of CSE-listed securities totaled 1.7 billion shares;
- Trading value of CSE-listed securities was $1.3 billion;
- CSE issuers completed 66 financings that raised an aggregate $517 million;
- The CSE welcomed listings from 12 new companies, including one fundamental change of an existing issuer, bringing total listed securities to 770 as at February 28, 2022.
“The month of February highlighted how the CSE effectively supports entrepreneurial companies across all sizes and sectors, with respect to both their equity and debt requirements,” said Richard Carleton, CSE Chief Executive Officer. “Financing activity for the month was dominated by three large debt deals for US cannabis firms, which accounted for more than 60% of the total capital raised. At the same time, our 12 new listings during the month were spread across mining, technology, and diversified industries, with one coming from the cannabis sector.”
“As we previously noted, the public comment period for our proposal to revise the Exchange’s listings policies concluded in early February. We are currently working with CSE’s regulators to create a path to implementation in the near future. The new policies will enable the Exchange to list additional investment products and will serve as a platform for our issuers to broaden the range of investors that they are able to attract.”
